I knew someone would say that. You Midwest folks are territorial with the agriculture. I'm sure they grow corn in Kansas too. I've even seen it growing here in California, but don't tell anyone.

I was unfortunate enough to drive to Kansas a couple years ago with my hubby. I had read that sunflower is the state flower. So, I figured I would see some. NO.
We saw wheat, corn, maiz, more wheat and a lot of dust. But, alas, no sunflowers.
It was not until we got back to Cali that we saw a field of sunflowers. Go figure.
Anyway, since I am bored and have nothing better to do, here is some interesting info for you all.

Major crops in Kansas
  • Wheat 10 million acres
  • Grain Sorghum 3.5 million acres
  • Corn 3.5 million acres
  • Soybeans 3 million acres
  • Alfalfa 1 million acres
  • Sunflower 300 thousand acres

I have heard that quite a bit. Oh wait, you said it was my attention to detail that excited you.... and it was less attention to detail and more mind-numbing boredom. And we are over off the 15.

Yo Bueno: I was kidding with you. I'm guessing you're up by Barstow. It's pretty much the same thing as 29 Palms. I share your pain Sister. Happy Memorial Day to you and your's.

I guess you could say that. I grew up in Indiana which is the midwest and part of the corn belt. All I see around here in Kansas where I live is wheat and lots of it. Ay yaya I miss corn country.
